comment Bridge bidding response after rho overcalls at 2 level and you have stoppers and 14 pts
Also, in step 5, do you think vulnerability matters? I would prefer 3NT with 5D at unfavorable, I think.

In option 7, did you mean 3D?

comment Bidding a high point Bridge hand
@TimLymington Standard American Yellow Card specifies that a double of any partscore is for takeout. Most partnerships I know play takeout at least through 4D, but I'm not familiar with standard bidding systems outside of the U.S. I'll update the answer to reflect the possibility of double being for penalties.

Typically hands are given in the order spades, hearts, diamonds, clubs. Here you've given clubs before diamonds - was that a typo?

comment Are there viable alternatives to a “three level pre-empt” with a good seven card suit?
even AKQxxx and AKQxxxx are fairly different holdings from the perspective of responder. I've cheated down to a two-level preempt holding JT-seventh, but in general a good 7-card suit should never open at the two-level.

6-12 is a pretty wide range given that there's little room for exploration. I've more often seen beginners taught 6-10 HCP with 2 of the top 3, with more aggressive preempting coming when the player has more experience and thus more ability to evaluate hands with measures other than HCP.

Oops, I meant to remove that K from the example hand. I've edited to do so.
